Mr. John M Muoio
This year, 2013, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After two surgeries and three months of laying low I was blessed with the option of avoiding invasive treatment (Chemotherapy) unless tumors returned. A few short months later I am happy to say that they thus far have not.
Within a few months of beginning to run again (seemingly from scratch) I was overjoyed to discover that I could once again train for long endurance events.
In addition to the boundless support I received from loving friends and family during a very low time in my life the LIVESTRONG Foundation provided me with free, real, and encouraging support and helpful information, up to and including real on-line conversations with a nurse about my specific cicumstance and diagnosis.
Participating in long endurance events is a favorite activity for me. It seemed appropriate enough for me to join their team of athletes as a fundraiser so that I could join other fund-raising companions in an amazing event while raising money for a foundation which has proven to be a great resource for so many cancer survivors, including myself. Thus, I have signed up for the 2013 NYC Marathon, and need to raise $3,800 for their cause.
Please help me give back to Team LIVESTRONG., who offer answers and support to those who's lives have been suddenly derailed by the words: “You have cancer.” The money I raise will go to support programs and services, which inspire and empower people affected by cancer. If you or someone you know is diagnosed, these resources will help face the challenges of cancer, head on, and live life on your own terms. Livestrong.org/get-help
Together we can contribute in a real and tangible way to the relentless forward progress of cancer survivors.
